Starter Max Scherzer struck out ten Twins batters in his 7.1 IP of work, padding the Tigers’ strikeout lead and keeping them well on the pace to smashing the Chicago Cubs’ record 1404 team strikeouts, and collected a deserved win. On the offensive side of things, Prince Fielder and Andy Dirks did damage off the […]
It’s April 29th and the Tigers are even with the Twins in the loss column! Spectacular!
The Tigers go for the sweep against the Braves tonight on ESPN. Doug Fister gets the start for Detroit. He’s coming off a strange start in Anaheim where he gave up three unearned runs in seven innings and also hit three batters, but got a no-decision. He has never faced the Braves before. The only […]
Fair or not, many fans saw today’s start for Rick Porcello as a make-or-break moment in his 2013 campaign. If he had another rough outing, fans predicted—and perhaps hoped—he would be sent to the bullpen or even demoted to Toledo in favor of the effective Drew Smyly. That’s a lot of pressure to put on […]
The Tigers look to keep the offense rolling as they send out mostly the same lineup against Atlanta’s Kris Medlen today (Brayan Peña will sit for Alex Avila). A hurting Andy Dirks also finds himself on the bench in favor of Matt Tuiasosopo, he of the five RBI night. Kris Medlen, notable Tommy John success […]

The Tigers hope to rebound against the Atlanta Braves following a difficult extra innings loss to the Kansas City Royals yesterday. They’ll be sending Anibal Sanchez to the mound, where he’ll oppose the NL’s best lineup, in terms of WAR. The Braves will counter with lefty Paul Maholm, who is having a surprising start to […]
Yes, you read it right: Justin Verlander had to leave today’s game with a blister. Predictably, I suppose, the bullpen couldn’t hold the lead and then the Royals broke the game open in extra innings as Alex Gordon added insult to injury with a grand slam off Darin Downs in the 10th. Verlander pitched well […]
First I would like to apologize profusely for the very bad pun in the headline. The Tiger offense showed up against Wade Davis – though they had help from spotty control and iffy defense – and recorded a 7-5 victory over the new-look Royals in their first meeting of the season. It was a win […]
The Tigers haven’t lost in the last two days! They haven’t won either. Here’s the lineup that will try to change that.
